Hardcore Punk Legends D.O.A. Say Goodbye at Limelight

I tell him I don’t believe anyone can really change the big picture. As George Carlin once said about America, “This country was bought and sold and paid for a long time ago.” And that, in my bitter opinion, applies to any country where money dictates which way the wind blows—that is to say, all of them.

“Fair enough,” said Keithley, but he still hasn’t lost hope.

“Politics is a dirty business [in Canada] just like it is in the USA,” he said. “It’s still bought and sold, parties take contributions and people owe favors to those who support them, there’s no denying that. The thing is: You still need to have some fresh blood in there that hasn’t grown up in the system and hasn’t been a part of the system … I don’t think you can completely give up on the system, so I’m trying to get in there to change it.”

In a way, it’s a win-win situation. If candidate Keithley succeeds, he’s convinced things will change in Canada. And if he loses?

“Who knows?” he said. “If I get defeated in the next election, [D.O.A.] may come [back] sooner than you think.”
